A note about our product information
Torrione is the estate red from critically-acclaimed Tuscan producer Petrolo, offering incredible richness, intensity and silky-smooth tannins. A very dear wine to Petrolo, wanted by Lucia Bazzocchi Sanjust in 1988 and made at the time with the help of former wine consultant Giulio Gambelli, Torrione marks the beginning of the winery’s new approach to winemaking: aiming to produce wines of the highest quality. Torrione is the true identity of Petrolo, blending the grapes of all the vineyards of Petrolo: not only Sangiovese from Bòggina but also other “historical” vineyards of Sangiovese, Merlot from Galatrona and Cabernet Sauvignon from Campo Lusso. This wine keeps an eye to the secular Tuscan tradition of adding French varietals to Sangiovese.
